The London Museum, established in 1912, had wider interests and collected modern objects, paintings, and costumes. Following the Second World War the museums amalgamated to form the Museum of London. Doors to their current site opened in 1976. They have become a centre of social and urban history, and continue to maintain our archaeological interests. They unveiled a second site in 2003, the Museum of London Docklands, housed in a Grade I listed warehouse at Canary Wharf, not far from the River Thames.
